The tenth annual Kids Day for Conservation will be held on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Benton County Fairgrounds Arena building. This year’s theme is “Decade of Discovery.”

Kids Day for Conservation is a natural resource event organized by more than 40 organizations, agencies, and businesses.  There are a variety of activities suitable for children and young adults. This event is free and open to the public.

Learn about the plants and animals of the Willamette Valley including endangered species and fascinating birds. Listen to fish tales, try your hand at archery, create your own recycled art, and build a birdhouse.  Families can learn about electrical safety, and discover ways to conserve energy and water.

Each year more than 1,800 youth and adults participate in the event.
